What happened when my pro-abortion friend saw THIS picture… | NRL News Today.

Editor’s note. This appeared Tuesday at lifesitenews.com.

DEabortionI had only been working for LifeSiteNews for a few weeks when a friend of mine came for a visit. She’s one of my best friends, and she’s an extraordinary person, full of love and compassion. She is also pro-abortion.

As the social media coordinator, I have the responsibility of finding stories on LifeSiteNews.com and posting them to Facebook and Twitter.

I spend a lot of time reading articles. While my friend was visiting, I was reading an article that contained the illustration displayed here, of a D&E abortion of a 23 week old baby.

My friend looked over my shoulder and gasped.

“What are you LOOKING at?” she asked, horrified.

“That’s an abortion,” I answered plainly.

“But, that’s a baby!” she exclaimed. “That doesn’t happen!”

“That’s a 23 week abortion. That happens quite

DEabortion

 frequently, actually.”

I tried to remain calm.

She’s not stupid. Really, honestly, she isn’t. She’s actually incredibly intelligent, educated. She has a degree.

I truly believe that my friend has been deceived.

How else could an intelligent, loving individual be completely “pro-choice”?

Deception.

People are told what they want to hear, that it’s “just a blob of tissue,” or they’re told, “abortion is OK in certain circumstances,” and most importantly, they’re told “abortion is a woman’s right.” But when they are presented with the reality that what they thought was a blob of tissue was actually a baby, a human being, a lot of them change their minds. Yes, a lot.

She just stared at the illustration with pain in her eyes.

“I don’t know if I’m OK with that.” She said with finality.

The reason I am telling you this story is not simply to share the pro-life message.

I am telling you this to explain to you the importance of supporting pro-life organizations and sharing the truth.

It’s one thing to read a story and have your pro-life beliefs affirmed, but it’s another thing entirely to take that information and spread it as far and wide as you possibly can.

And we have seen time and time again that the truth is what changes hearts and mind. …

A Daddy’s Letter to His Little Girl (About Her Future Husband) | UnTangled

25 04 2013

April 17, 2013 —

Dear Cutie-Pie,

Recently, your mother and I were searching for an answer on Google. Halfway through entering the question, Google returned a list of the most popular searches in the world. Perched at the top of the list was “How to keep him interested.”

It startled me. I scanned several of the countless articles about how to be sexy and sexual, when to bring him a beer versus a sandwich, and the ways to make him feel smart and superior.

And I got angry.

Little One, it is not, has never been, and never will be your job to “keep him interested.”

Little One, your only task is to know deeply in your soul—in that unshakeable place that isn’t rattled by rejection and loss and ego—that you are worthy of interest. (If you can remember that everyone else is worthy of interest also, the battle of your life will be mostly won. But that is a letter for another day.)

If you can trust your worth in this way, you will be attractive in the most important sense of the word: you will attract a boy who is both capable of interest and who wants to spend his one life investing all of his interest in you.

Little One, I want to tell you about the boy who doesn’t need to be kept interested, because he knows you are interesting:

I don’t care if he puts his elbows on the dinner table—as long as he puts his eyes on the way your nose scrunches when you smile. And then can’t stop looking.

I don’t care if he can’t play a bit of golf with me—as long as he can play with the children you give him and revel in all the glorious and frustrating ways they are just like you.

I don’t care if he doesn’t follow his wallet—as long as he follows his heart and it always leads him back to you.

I don’t care if he is strong—as long as he gives you the space to exercise the strength that is in your heart.

I couldn’t care less how he votes—as long as he wakes up every morning and daily elects you to a place of honor in your home and a place of reverence in his heart.

I don’t care about the color of his skin—as long as he paints the canvas of your lives with brushstrokes of patience, and sacrifice, and vulnerability, and tenderness.

I don’t care if he was raised in this religion or that religion or no religion—as long as he was raised to value the sacred and to know every moment of life, and every moment of life with you, is deeply sacred.

In the end, Little One, if you stumble across a man like that and he and I have nothing else in common, we will have the most important thing in common:

You.

Because in the end, Little One, the only thing you should have to do to “keep him interested” is to be you.

Your eternally interested guy,

Daddy

This post is, of course, dedicated to my daughter, my Cutie-Pie. But I also want to dedicate it beyond her.

I wrote it for my wife, who has courageously held on to her sense of worth and has always held me accountable to being that kind of “boy.”

I wrote it for every grown woman I have met inside and outside of my therapy office—the women who have never known this voice of a Daddy.

And I wrote it for the generation of boys-becoming-men who need to be reminded of what is really important—my little girl finding a loving, lifelong companion is dependent upon at least one of you figuring this out. I’m praying for you.
